A School of Psychology Work Science Center Distinguished Lecture by Ken Catchpole, Medical University of South Carolina

Ken Catchpole has spent the past 15 years studying safety and human performance in acute clinical care in general and in surgery in particular.

Using examples from cardiac, orthopaedic, neurological, spinal, trauma, and urological surgery, he will describe the results of observational studies that have helped to understand the following:

  • how surgical performance arises from the interaction between what people do, how they work together, and what they do it with 
  • how the introduction of new technologies can have far profound, and not always beneficial, effects
  • what these findings might mean for the future of healthcare delivery and workforce management.
